Highlands in partnership with SFCC offers upper division (300- and 400-level) courses and graduate courses in education, business and social work. The courses lead to a BA degree, provide state education licensure, provide an MA degree, or offer professional development. Students that enter Highlands with an AA or AS degree, including the common core, will be able to begin work on their program requirements immediately. Students with an AAS will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis.
Courses are held on-site at the HEC and online, and are taught by Highlands faculty. Classes meet once a week in the evenings or weekends to accommodate working students. Enrollment and articulation agreements allow qualified students to pursue an AA or AS degree at the community college while taking courses at Highlands.
